Puzzling CHIP

Okay folks, what's missing from this?

Hint: CHIP ain't free (and it's not "insurance").

Answer: 8.5 million kids covered ... at what cost?

These are children of families that "don't qualify for Medicaid, yet can't afford private insurance," which would would seem to be describing the "middle class," but apparently not.

And despite its name, CHIP is NOT insurance: there are no premiums, no skin in the game.

And here's a question: since we're required by law to buy health insurance that includes first dollar preventive care benefits, why aren't these kids on ObamaPlans? Surely it can't be for economic reasons: these plans are, after all affordable and effective.

'Tis a puzzler.
